Location: Russellville, MO
|There were many people in Cole county and surrounding counties that seen the object also.
I was listening to the scanner when the first report came into the Cole County Sherrifs Office (This dispatch was called Jeff Central) about a bright light in the southeastern part of Russellville. Deputies were dispatched to the area, I believe there were 2 deputies that arrived and called back into the dispatch operator and said they had a confirmed sighting of something but was not sure of what it was. They thought it was a joke at first but quickly found out it wasn't. They had dispatch call the Air force to see if they had any air craft in the area and to see if they had anything on radar, they said they had no air craft in the area and showed nothing on their radars. The deputies followed it for a long time and listening to them on the scanner i could tell they were shaken up a bit, you could here it in their voices. Nothing was ever printed in the paper or reported as far as I know. I do remember that one deputy sayng that he had never seen lights like that before and that the lights changed colors from time to time. He had gotten within a hundred feet of the object and also said it was not making any noise.
